Frameline San Francisco's 32nd international gay & lesbian film festival opened in June with the feature film Affinity. Now thanks to Logo the film will be available to a wider audience.

Affinity is director Tim Fywell's adaptation of the Sarah Waters novel of the same name. Set in 19th century England, the film explores a romantic relationship between two women separated by class and privileged.

Margaret Prior (Anna Madeley) is a wealthy aristocrat who has recently been jilted and is mourning the loss of her father. She finds comfort in visiting prisoners at the bleak Millbank prison. There she finds mysterious Selina Dawes (Zoe Tapper) channeling spirits and serving time for murder.

Love, obsession, and the supernatural collide as Selina shares her secrets with Margaret.

Affinity has much to say about attitudes, societal demands, and the proper place of women in 19th century England. said of the film: “As a mystery that just happens to have queer women in the central roles, the movie delivers.”

Affinity premieres on cable channel Logo August 17th 10PM ET/PT.
